 A Royal drought 

I'm still trying to find the authoritative reference, but the basic fact is that my Kansas City Royals haven't been in sole possession of first place this late in the season since at least before the strike....and perhaps not since the mid 1980s. It's remarkable to me - I figured this team would do well to win as many as 75 games this year, and more likely win 72, and finish 3rd or 4th again. But now there's a real chance they could not only contend for the division, but win it outright. That would make for an amazing "worst to first"story, considering how awful they were in 2002 with their first-ever 100-loss season.

I'm stunned. But thrilled.
